British Airways and Working at Height

British Airways have placed an order with UK based access platform specialists, Working At Height Limited, following a competitive tender.

Working At Height Limited worked closely with British Airways for 12 months prior to the order being placed for a total of 35. This work included extensive trials at both Heathrow and Gatwick. These trials proved that these Genie models were ideal for low level access to their fleet of aircraft.

British Airways has been using a wide range of Genie access platforms for many years, where they have earned a tremendous reputation for ease of use, reliability and safety.

The outcome of the trials proved the very compact Genie GR-15 Runabout offers quick access into the wheel bay of a Boeing 747 and  larger aircraft in the fleet, and access to the underside of wings, including leading and trailing edges of all aircraft types.  It also reaches all aircraft surfaces up to 6.47 m (20 ft 8 in).

One of the latest models in the Genie range, the GR-26J was chosen for its versatility and the ability to lift two people to a maximum reach height of 9.90 m (32 ft 6 in), it will access wing, fuselage and stabilisers on most aircraft types.

The Genie GS-2032 and GS-2632 scissor is the work horse of many hangars world-wide.

Warrior 1400X Saving Time And Money For Sutton Services - cwmagsWarrior 1400X Saving Time And Money For Sutton Services

Sutton Services Limited recently bought and installed their first Warrior 1400X in their UK site.  The machine is processing Arising’s C&D waste from a recycling site in Ipswich, UK.

New features on the Warrior 1400X have already lead to an increase in productivity and improved fuel efficiency for Sutton.

Glenn Sutton, Director, said, “We feel this machine is now way ahead of anything else on the market. With the new screen media set up, we have definitely seen a 25-30% reduction in the need for crushing, this drives down our operational costs while increasing our production ability.

Compared to the previous machine we were operating, we have seen a 10% reduction in set up and take down time. There is also noise reduction making this a suitable machine to use in the middle of a city.”

“We have recorded a vast improvement in the middle grade quality, they can send the mid-grade product straight to stockpile as these are correctly sized, the media now ensures that the fines are not piggy backing on paving slabs or kerbing
